Celebrity sock stories

Do you know what Britney Spears and Albert Einstein have in common?  They are both not fans of socks.  Einstein got tired of his socks developing holes and he also thought that wearing socks and shoes together were unnecessary, so he opted for shoes only.   Britney says that socks are the one article of clothing that she dreads wearing.  Who would have thought a genius and a pop star would have this in common?
